The United States and the Cold War in the High North
The author looks at the relationship between the United States and Norway from the Second World War through to the 1980s in a book that is solidly based on research in American, British and Norwegian archives, as well as interviews with many policymakers. In addition to offering new light on cooperation and conflict between American and Norwegian politicians, military leaders and intelligence agents - including some new information on the U2 incident of 1960 - he provides a thought-provoking case study of the relationships between diplomacy and military strategy. In particular, Tamnes pays attention to Norway’s somewhat ambivalent position of encouraging on the one hand an American commitment to the country’s defence, while on the other maintaining a policy of allowing no foreign military bases or nuclear weapons on Norwegian soil.
